Meghan Markle ‘recreated romantic Botswana date with tents in the garden’ for Prince Harry’s birthday

Meghan Markle reportedly went all out for her husband Prince Harry's 35th birthday last year in September.

The 38 year old, who recently shared her top five lockdown beauty secrets for amazing skin, is said to have set up tents in the gardens of Frogmore Cottage to recreate their trip in Botswana, Africa.

Harry had taken the brunette beauty on holiday there back in 2016, right at the start of their relationship and the memories are thought to be precious to the royal.

"Last year, for Harry's birthday, Meghan recreated their Botswana camping adventures in their backyard," a source told People magazine.

Harry, who reportedly feels "rudderless" after moving to Los Angeles, had whisked the former Suits actress away for the intimate trip after they'd shared just two dates together and it's thought to be the location where the pair first fell in love.

The insider added: "It's a place that means so much to them – and to Harry in particular – so Meghan wanted to bring that happy place to him on his day so she set up a tent, got sleeping bags, cooked dinner and recreated Botswana where they fell in love."

The couple have come a long way since then as they tied the knot on 19 May 2018 and had baby Archie, one, on 6 May the following year.

In celebration of their two year wedding anniversary, Meghan and Harry are thought to have exchanged "creative" and "thoughtful" gifts.

The couple reportedly celebrated in their new home in LA with a "quiet" evening in, but according to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn’t let the low-key celebration stop them from exchanging “sentimental” gifts to mark the special day.

"This year, they both gave each other gifts based on cotton," the insider told the same publication.

"Undoubtedly, it was a very creative and romantic gesture as all their gifts are to one another.

"They love to do their own take on traditional wedding gifts," the insider added.

“The first anniversary was paper, and Meghan wrote out the wedding speech and had it framed for him.”

According to wedding lifestyle website The Knot, cotton represents how close and interconnected a married couple will be in the beginning of their marriage and demonstrates how husbands and wives can become more flexible as they grow.

Paper, meanwhile, represents the fragile beginnings of a marriage, but, if protected, can survive for “a lifetime”.
